These last few months have been some of the most difficult months for people in many ways, but for the couple that has been on the verge of divorce, quarantine has pushed them over the edge and into the office of an attorney.
If you are getting a divorce, an attorney is the most important person to have to get the best divorce settlement possible but what about all the other areas of divorce? Navigating the entire process, getting organized, dealing with the emotions and feeling overwhelmed and what will my life look like after the papers have been signed?
So, the question is, “At a time when I am spending money on an attorney, why would I spend more for another professional?“ During this time, you are not at your best, you are sapped of energy and not thinking clearly yet you are being asked to make important, long lasting decisions. The answer is, you can’t afford not to hire a divorce coach. Working with one will prove invaluable. Family and friends are a great support and much needed but they are not knowledgeable nor are they unbiased and this can cause undo harm to the process.
